    Why do you use multiple drones?

    As for me, it was simply a matter of money. I started off with a cheap (by drone costs) one to see if I liked the hobbybir not. If I didn't, nothing really lost. As I grew to appreciate the hobby more, I purchased a mid-range drone. But once I realized that I was hooked on it, I stepped up to...

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    I believe in God, but I'm not a Bible thumper or fanatic. That means his words and laws are absolute. Anything else is deviation from the norm.

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    That's because I see life as it truly is,and not how I'd like it to be.

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    I hope so too. But unfortunately, times and society is changing, and not for the better. I've lived long enough to see things that were not acceptable yesterday, are normal today. Common sense, empathy, decency, morality...they are all casualties of time. Even the truth has taken a beating to...

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    Instances like this is why I asked my initial question: https://dronedj.com/2020/05/18/drones-could-limited-one-park-wake-forest/ It just seems like I'm seeing more & more of these types of attacks on the hobby, a hobby which I was about to become invested in substantially.

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    And that's the thing for me. Did they steal ideas from competitors, probably. They all steal from each other. I'm a Samsung fan, won't own anything else. But did they steal ideas from Apple? Hell yeah, I'm not naive enough to think otherwise, just as I know that Apple stole ideas from Samsung...

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    @mavics assessment may have been accurate, but the courts disagreed, hence the verdict against DJI. And unfortunately, yours or mine opinion on the matter is irrelevant because the courts decision on the next step is what's important. Buts here's where I'm stumped. I stated 2 facts, and then...

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    And I hate to say it, but if you rarely read the forums, and hate to hear others reports of it, then you are really ill equipped to respond because you don't have the facts. All you have is an opinion on a subject you know little about. Besides that, the internet and/or social media groups are...

    Bad Time To Become A Drone Enthusiast?

    Between RemoteID, and DJI found guilty of copyright infringement, did I chose a bad time to become hooked on drones? I've gotten 3 drones since Christmas (which probably classifies me as hooked), and was seriously considering adding the MA2 to my collection. Now...

    Mobile Video Editing?

    I did, but all I see is that it's made for iOS, not Android.

    Mobile Video Editing?

    I'll give it a try too. Not afraid about the price of its worth it. Thanks for the heads up. Just checked, and looks like it's just for iOS. Looks like it's worth the price though.

    Videos Corrupted?

    Thanks for the info, but I discovered that I was not turning off the video before powering down the drone. That was causing the issue.

    Mobile Video Editing?

    Is there a Android video editing application that anyone can suggest? I'm not looking for anything spectacular, just something I can use to do some adjusting with to share in the field.

    Videos Corrupted?

    I'm still learning about drones, as I just got my first one for Christmas. And living in Michigan means I haven't much time to fly them because of the weather. I just assumed it wasn't a big deal (like I said I just remember the fact I didn't stop recording).
